Enjoy Wildwood through the seasons. Autumn sees the colouring of deciduous trees and heralds the start of the camellia season which extends into spring. Spring is also when the large collection of blossom trees, magnolias, wisteria, bulbs and perennials begin to flower. The show continues from late August right through spring. Keep up to date with what's happening at Wildwood garden by following us on Facebook.

For regular seasonal news from Wildwood join the mailing list by sending your email address to . In the latest newsletter we look at what's coming up in the garden. Here's a link to a recent newsletter.

We are also thrilled that the garden has made the cover of a recent issue of Our Garden magazine, which is the quarterly journal of The Garden Clubs of Australia. We also featured in House & Garden and Australian Country and now find ourselves in a book about country gardens (see the story among our news items).

Below is shown Camellia reticulata 'Ellie's Girl' which is just one of the lovely camellias in this mountain garden that herald the beginning of the garden's spring floral show and will feature in the annual camellia show held over two weekends each August (see Events for dates).
